predatory trusts.
A Brief Clash.
When those two forces met In the
congressional convention there was a
brief clash. When the atmosphere
- cleared the regular forces . were found
to be In absolute control of the sttu
' atlon. The only contest which arose in
the convention was over the seating of
contesting delegations - from Summltt
. county. Charles Isbell was at the head
of the delegation from that county,
.which favored thcr reorganize, while
Samuel Q. Rogers, ex-prosecuting at
torney of Summltt county, was at the
head of the delegation favoring the reg
ulars. The contest was decided by the
other counties in the district seating the
Rogers delegation, after Mr. Isbell had
tried to manufacture a contest in Trum
bull county, which would have put the
majority of the delegates to the con
vention In contest. But his effort was
. such a lamentable failure that It only
created merriment In his endeavor to
keep the convention from declaring for
Mr. Hearst, Mr. Isbell and his agents
were profuse in their promises, financial
and otherwise, to the delegates. After
the Rogers delegation had been seated
the following resolutlons were .intro
duced by F. D. Templeton of Trumbull
county and - were unanimously adopted
by the convention amidst the greatest
enthusiasm: ;
"The democracy of the Nineteenth dls

Acting Detective A. Q. Vaughn has
long been of the opinion that If one
dog refuses to live another should be
raised. During the past three years
.the detective has been going through
. the trouble of raising blooded bird dogs,
1 and none of the canines have liked to
" reach the ripe old age of eight months.
. Mr. Vaughn Is now seriously thinking
of writing a book entitled "Pointers I
Have Met"
Mr. Vaughn's hobby' Is fine dogs and
finer guns. His home reminds many of
. his friends of a young arsenal; shot
guns of various brands and rifles of a
dosen different vintages are hung about
the walls, to sayNiothlng of revolvers
."' and bowie knives. The detective has
long wanted a good bird dog to accom
pany his collection of firearms on hunt
ing trips, but so far has . had the 111
luck to lose every dog that he had
trained Just about the time the canine
' was far enough advanced in Its tduca-
tlon to be taken put on a hunting expe
dition. The first pointer raised by Mr. Vaughn
was killed by a wagon running over It
' while It was watching the movements
of a strange black cat. The dog had
' just been taught to point and seemingly
did not distinguish between a bird and
a kitten. Dog No. 1 was only six months
old when the wagon came. That was
three years ago.
The second of Mr. Vaughn's dogs met
a most tragic end. - When the dog was
7 months old, Its master began to teach
it the gentle act of pointing at game.

(By Herman Bidder, Editor Staats Bel-
New , York, Feb. JO.Whll I have
wanted Grover Cleveland for the Demo
cratic candidate,' I should most cer
tainly support W. R. Hearst in the
event of his nomination. A silver plank
is, the only thing, tfhat would keep me
from declaring for Mr. Hearst if he
should come out victorious. ' There are
many arguments in favor of Mr. Hearst
as - well as In favor of Air. Cleveland.
The third term argument against Mr.
Cleveland I feel is weakened because
he -has been out of politics so long. I
intend to take a most active' part In
the coming campaign, as I always have
except .when Mr. Bryan was the nom
inee. I do not "feel that I could con
sistently support Mr. Bryan. Mr. Hearst,
if he defeats Mr. Cleveland in conven
tion, will not lack support' As to an
instructed delegation, I think the cam
paign is not far enough advanced to
discuss that yet Before sentiment is
.more settled that Is too broad a ques
tion. The Instruction of "We favor the
nomination of William R. Hearst as the
Democratio candidate for the presidency.
He has always been true. He meets the
full measure of the first' and last test
of Democracy. We instruct the delegates
to the national democratic convention to
always fearlessly, meet Jefferson's su
preme test;,, and, second, to voice the
sentiment of this district by voting for
the nomination of Hearst for president;
and finally, we admonish the delegates
to -remember that they derive all their
power and Influence from this consti
tuency and regardless of any possible
contingency, we . expect them to re
flect our sentiments, forgetful of all else
and others."
The two delegates selected to go to
the national convention who were In
structed to support Mr. Hearst are M.
M. Paget of Warren, Trumbull county,
and C. A. Corbin of Ashtabula, Ashta
bula county. Their alternates are Rich
ard 'Armstrong and Briton Johnson of
Kent, Portage county. The convention
selected as its candidate for congress
C. K. McCormickof Akron, Summltt
county, and for presidential elector pr.
W. Mllllkln of the same city and county.
The convention indorsed Judge David
I Rockwell of Ravenna, Portage county,
for delegate at. large. M. M. Padgett,
one of the delegates to the national con
vention. Is the editor and owner of the
Western Reserve Democrat of this city,
end Mr. Corbin is the editor of the
Democratio Standard of Ashtabula.
After the Isbell delegation had been
ousted from the convention It retired to
the Park - hotel, -Where It held -a-rump
convention and selected Charles Isbell
of Akron and 8. B. Palm of this city as
delegates to the .national convention:
These two gentlemen are said to favor
the nomination of Grover Cleveland or
some person acceptable to the ex-pres
ldent Mr. Palm was postmaster of
this city when Mr. Cleveland was chief
executive of the nation.

The offer was refused. The next day.
while running around the neighborhood
of . its kennel the dog- saw a streetcar
coming from afar off. Quick as a flash
the dog settled itself in the middle of the
track and began to point. On came the
car, and stlffer pointed the dog. Several
minutes afterward Vaughn picked up the
few stray pieces of scattered pointer.
"The third time's a charm," thought
the detective, as he purchased another
pointer, some eight months ago. This
dog was' just as smart as any sports
man could wish for, and lived to be
7 months old. Then it died. Vaughn
was pussled to' know the cause of its
death,, thinking perhaps that someone
might have poisoned the pup. He took
the remains of No. I to a well-known
local veterinary to have an autopsy per
formed To the surprise of Vaughn the
doctor stated that the death of the dog
was caused by appendicitis.
"Never saw so much rain during the
month of February," remarked Captain
of Police Qrltsmacher this morning, "and
I have lived in Portland for 35 years.
Every day during the present month It
has either rained or stormed in a man
ner that has caused old settlers to won
der what had happened.
"I can remember when I first came
to Oregon, I used to write back to
friends in the east and brag about the
February weather. Many times have a
party of my friends gone out into the
timber on Washington's birthday and
returned home with arms full of wild
flowers that were in full bloom.
"But we always expected that March
would be a stormy month, and no one
was ever surprised t at whatever sort
of weather was dished out during that
windy , month. Several times. I remem
ber, there had been heavy falls of snow
during March, but that came as a sort
of novelty' .
"Can you give any reason for the
wetness of the present month T' was
asked the captain.
"None, excepting It be that alt this
year's rainfall is to come in a heap,"
was the reply. ,
"Wettest February during my Oregon
days." said Jailer Ben Banch, who first
saw Portland one bright summer away
back in 1869. "Ouess me Lord is trying
to send enough water in order that the
city jail may be thoroughly cleaned."

Washington, Feb. 29. -The news of the
action of the 29th Ohio congressional
district In Instructing its delegates to
St Louis to cast their votes for W. R.
Hearst for president excited unusual
interest here today. The action of the
convention was discussed by members
of both houses 'and leading Democrats
generally. This In Ohio is the first con
gressional convention held this year,
Hearst received ' the indorsement and
without an apparent struggle. There are
strong democrats in Ohio and It Is felt
that this' action will be far-reaching.
The democrats of northeaster Ohio, are
conservative and fair. They realize
keenly that Mr, Hearst stands for these
things which they feel should be brought
into being for the better government
of the people, They are affected by the
oppression of the trusts that Mr. Hearst
has fought hardest "It Is the first gun
for Hearst," said a veteran politician
tonight "and- you may depend, upon it
It will not be the last It is well for
Hearst that Ohio Democrats, have ' de
clared for binii- They are good fighters
and good campaigners."
In the hotels the matter was the sub
ject of much talk. - Politicians say that
those who have controlled party poli
tics In the past see there Is material
substance, to the Hearst boom. The ex
ample of the Democrats of Ohio will be
followed rapidly and in a few weeks
Hearst sentiment will be crystallized.
This is the opinion of Mr. Hearst's
friends. "They took the convention from
Chicago," said one man, "to get away
from Hearst sentiment." It now looks
as if the delegates will take the Hearst
sentiment to St Louis when the go.
Had the instructions been given from
a district in the far west, that was the
home of Mr. Hearst, they would not
have been surprising. It was conceded
that Mr. Hearst is strong there, but
that the first Instructions should come
from Ohio, those who have not been in
touch with the Hearst movement do
not understand. It means, said one gen
tleman, that conservative Democrats also
are for Hearst He demands .that all
laws forbidding from taking away from
another class that to which it has no
right and that is just what old line dem
ocrats demand- In all this Hearst stands
for the highest form of conservatism am)
no one knows this better than solid.

Men'and women, who are broken down in health, are

the greater number are people who are in fair health but who
know that the way to keep well is to keep the digestion per

to insure good digestion and proper assimilation of food.
Prevention is always better than cure and disease can find
no foothold if the digestion is kept in good working order by

them to keep the stomach right."
The army of people who take Stuart's Tablets are mostly people in fairly good health, and who keep
well by taking them regularly ' after meals. They contain no opiates, cocaine or any cathartic or injurious

Excepting the German bark Magda
lene, which will probably clear today,
no grata vessel cleared for a foreign
port this month. Usually during the
month of February there have been
from eight to 16 wheat cargoes dis
patched from the Columbia river to for
eign ports. The steamship Indravelli
sailed for the Orient on February 3, but
her cargo was mostly of flour. She had
on board 69,629 barrels of flour, the
largest quantity of that commodity the
vessel over carried. It Is the third larg
est flour cargo that ever left the Colum
bia river, only being exceeded by those
taken out on the Algoa and the Indra-
pura during the present season. The
flour was valued at $214,664, and went
to Yokohama, Kobe, Mojt, Hong Kong
and Shanghai.
In February, 1901, seven grain ships
cleared at Portland for foreign marts
whose aggregated cargoes were valued
at $438,416. During the same period in
1902 there were 15 vessels cleared, the
total value of their cargoes amounting
to $1,057,959. Last year for the corre
sponding period eight ships cleared.
carrying grain valued at $752,246. Local
exporters attribute the present dull
period to the fact that the price of
wheat on the Pacific coast is higher
than the Liverpool quotations.
Neither are there so many orders from
the Orient coming In for flour as thfcre
was previous to the declaration of war.
But it is believed by the exporters that
this will only prove of temporary dura
tion. They state that the Japs pur
chased freely, believing that hostilities
would soon begin, and for that reason
they are now well supplied. But If the
war should continue for any length of
time It Is believed that the trade will

and will take out on the return trip
rainy large cargoes.
Today th British ship Red Rock will
complete loading her flour cargo, which
comprises in the neighborhood of 82,-
500 barrels. But it Is hardly likely that
she will be ready to clear In time to be
addetl to. this month's business.
The wheat shipments to points down
the coast have also diminished. But
they are larger than the foreign ship
ments. In round numbers they amount
to 38.000 bushels. Of this amount the
Despatch sailed on February 9 with 600
tons, the Aberdeen two days later with
160 tons and the Aurella on February 20
With 490 tons.
